Ah memories, my first command many years ago. Purched by Felixarc circa 1970 and operated at the Port of Felixstowe until she was sold in approx 1985 (I think), she was a nice little tug operating in conditions sometimes beyond her capabilities and size. She had a 200HP Catterpillar in her at that time by I believe she has recently been re- engined by her present owner Mr Dean. If she was for sale I would buy her.

Thanks for the posting George.

Hi Chris,

She has been for sale, not too sure if she still is on the market but I am sure she has a price on her if the question is asked!
